Town centre shops closed at a rate of 18 a day during the first half of the year in a sign that high street retailers continued to suffer despite signs of improvement in the wider economy.

The rate fell from more than 20 during the same period last year, but it was charity stores, betting shops and cheque cashing outlets that picked up the slack.
